Dear members,

I am a final year translation student and hope to be graduating with a first in one month. I would like to find an in-house translation position in Germany. Would anyone have any pointers in terms of what companies would be interested in hiring a soon to be graduate? I'm interested in everything and would jump at the chance to work in-house in Germany. (I also have Spanish as a second source language.
THank you all so much for your help,
Kathryn

A few companies I know of / have dealt with and that sometimes employ recent graduates on an in-house basis in Germany:

www.wohanka.de (Bavaria + UK)

SDL (Stuttgart + Munich + UK)

RWS translations (UK + Berlin)

Euroscript (Berlin)

EVS (UK + Germany)

Wieners + Wieners (Ahrensburg, Germany)

Good luck!

Some links May 12, 2008

Hello Kathryn1980

Here are some links you might find useful:

www.bdue.de (German Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators)
www.aticom.de (another translators' association)
They both post job vacancies on their websites.

Then you could search:

www.monster.de (of course)
www.rekruter.de (includes vacancies advertised by the Job Centre/Arbeitsamt)

If you do some research on those sites, you will get a good overview of current openings. Many companies are looking for British native speakers, so you should stand a good chance.

Good luck with your final exams (if they're still to come)!

Kind regards
Sonja

Your university/faculty must have information on former employers of translation graduates.

G'luck:-)
